Brief Answer:
Either penile acne or folliculitis, apparently topical antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
According to me it can be either penile acne or superficial folliculitis.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical antibiotic like nadifloxacin gel or benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on these bumps twice daily for 10-14 days.
This should help in resolving them.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
